A novelty once if passing through.
The Colorado wine tasting offerings are okay table wine, the food is diner quality, the service is slow, the seating is pretty, very affordable, plenty of parking.
Why this is fun to do at least once - The tasting is free, no markup to buy a bottle with your meal, they were out of the buffalo lasagna by 7pm, the spaghetti and fried fish were fine and only $13.
The large inside and creekside seating is hidden from the highway, and plenty of parking.
It's not a culinary (or Napa) sensation, but it's fun once for the novelty.
Wine's of Colorado....Not Food of Colorado. The food is definatly not their strong point....nasty is the only word that comes to mind. I had the French Onion Soup and it was horrible. It was shredded mozz cheese and was not broiled it was just added to the soup. If you've ever had FOS it's made with swiss cheese melted over a piece of french bread w/ the soup underneath. As my side I ordered chips thinking they made their own chips just like every other place in Colorado, however they came witha 25 cent bag of kettle chips. I can only laugh at how bad our lunch was......the only thing I ended up eating was the bag of chips, they were great!!
The food was terrible. The server was much more interested in rolling silverware than providing service.
My pork sandwich was disgusting. I cant even describe it.
It was recommended by a local, I have to assume that she was paid off since her shop was around the conner. I cant think of any other reason to make the suggestion.
Huge disappointment!. Celebrating our wedding anniversary in Cripple Creek, Wines of Colorado sounded like the perfect way to top off the weekend on our way home. We have never been so disappointed. We arrived around 11:30 to find our host absolutely inhospitable. His demeanor made the "wine tasting" sour! We left the shop without experiencing the restaurant because we truly felt customers were not appreciated or welcomed. This COULD be a terrific place if the staff learned to welcome and cater to their customers.
Great good weather Lunch/Dinner spot - maybe HIGHLY Recommended.
Just had work lunch here. The weather was nice, so my party of 5 was able to sit outside - great! The outdoor seating is shaded and far enough away from Hgh 24 (didn't hear cars, only the nearby creak and the wind though the trees) to provide a comfortable, subtle "picnic" atmosphere. On the entrance level, there are wines to taste and buy. I did not partake in the tasting, but the specfic Colorado made selection appeared adaquate (there was chards, merlot, viogniers, pinots... etc.) and turns out to be a posible destination in itself. Something different from your typical wine section in the liquor store. Now, if I wasn't sitting outside, I'm not sure I'd be 100% happy with the indoor seating - it's almost an afterthough between the main entrance and the store entrance.
The service was young, but plentiful, competent, and refreshing. If you're here for the wines, you may want to discuss with the experts up stairs, first. Hostess was accomodating (she escorted us to the outdoor seeting and encouraged us to pick a table that looked most inviting). We only orded burgers and sandwiches, but the waitress seemed to know what was up - knew the sides, knew the cheeses, was patient and friendly. Also, even thought we chose the spot furthest from the kitchen, our drinks were filled will. Prices were in the correct range for what I got - large, meaty Cheeseburger and side for $8 - $9.
Quality of food and preparation, this is tough. I like my burgers well done - and I liked this one. I could have asked for medium. The well done patty worked since there was cheese, mushroom, and onions on top, and more than just beef in the patty (I'm guessing some red wine, seasoned salt, and worcestershire mixed in). The outside was crisp. The others also thought burgers were over done, but everyone was full and happy with the choice. There was no shortage of meat in the beef or buffalo patties. I don't think waitress asked how we wanted meat. Policy?
At 7,500 ASL in Cascade, Colorado the base of beautiful Pikes Peak the Wines of Colorado offers the traveler the BEST Gormet burgers and BEST colorado wine selection in the state. Whether dining indoors or outside along Crystal Creek. This local mountain atmosphere is worth the trip just for the experience.
Just east of Colorado Springs at the Pikes Peak Toll Road turnoff.
